If you’re not following Elizabeth Gilbert’s posts on Facebook, I suggest you do it now! I even set it up so I see her stuff at the top of my newsfeed, which has been amazing.

Life has felt (and been) a bit overwhelming lately, so coming back to my little routines like these weekly posts is a nice way to stay grounded. I’ve been thinking a lot about how I am rarely creative when my life is in flux (or in limbo, if you will) – it’s only when I start to feel settled that I feel like making, writing, and taking photos. Yet another reason I’m excited to stay put for awhile!
This weekend I’m helping my sister move into a new apartment, seeing friends, and hopefully hanging out with my mom’s new golden retriever puppy. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.
